3. Garden Tools: One of the best things about freelance waterfowl hunting is being able to move with the birds each day based on their roosting and feeding patterns. But changing locations on a daily basis also means hunters must find new ways to hide each morning. That's why Georgia hunter Mark Smith always brings a pair of pruning shears and a rake along on his waterfowling adventures. "Pruning shears can be used to cut willows or other cover for a makeshift blind," Smith says. "And a rake is especially helpful when trying to conceal a layout blind in crop stubble. One guy can use the rake to create a pile of chaff, stalks, or leaves while the others stuff the blinds. It's a huge time saver."
